Workshops and Retreats

Explore the awakening heart-mind teachings of bodhicitta on the meditation cushion and in the art studio.

Join Artmonks Suiko McCall (painter, Art Monastery Founder & Abbess) and Qayyum Johnson (poet, sculptor, and Zen activist) in this immersive 4-day retreat that explores art and Zen. We will build a bridge to unify your creative and spiritual practices in the context of a supportive community of creative contemplatives. Together we will cultivate an uplifted spirit of inquiry as a powerful antidote to the challenges and heartaches of artmaking so that you can leave the retreat feeling rejuvenated, inspired, and liberated in your practices. Indulge in a variety of guided art exercises and enjoy spacious time to work on your own creative projects (and the baths!).

Beginners welcome. No experience necessary.
